Patient discussion about vigor

Q. Effexor Hi! I am new to the forum. I was diagnosed eight months ago with effexor - induced mania and now have been diagnosed as Bipolar II, rapid cycling, with mixed states. I have a 30 year old history of treatment-resistant depression. No mania prior to the effexor. I also self-treat the depression with one hour of vigorous exercise daily, sunlight, healthy diet, regular sleep, and no stimulants or depressants including coffee and alcohol. I take omega 3, magnesium malate, calcium, zinc, selenium, and super b-complex supplements as well.

A. Well, I found out that goats get depressed too and it only happens when they are mineral deficient. I think the mineral deficiency that causes more health problems and especially related to the brain is Copper. Evidently it is critical to the absorption of many other minerals. If you've tried St. Johns Wort and found that it helps at all, I would suggest that it is because SJW contains lots of copper. Another really excellent source of copper is Kelp. Actually kelp is an excellent source of all the minerals, especially all the ones not yet discovered by man. **Natures Version** If you are anemic, you cannot absorb the iron without copper. Copper also helps the body to absorb calcium. I understand that there is a coating of calcium on the nerves. Unless you are eating a really old fashioned diet of mostly raw and unprocessed foods grown in remineralized soil, the food you are eating is most likely stripping more minerals from your body than adding to.
